The Lawn Tennis Museum at Wimbledon charts the earliest origins of Lawn Tennis from 1870 to the spectacle of the sport in its modern form. Visitors will have a chance to view the Centre Court on which the greatest prize in Lawn Tennis is contested annually.
On display are also the magnificent trophies that are presented to the winners of Wimbledon. Tennis equipment and artifacts are on show from the sixteenth century and video footage of Wimbledon’s greatest matches and characters can be viewed. The Museum offers a tour of the facilities and gives visitors the unique opportunity to see behind the scenes at Wimbledon- including the players changing area and the chance to meet some of the staff that are responsible for making the venue such a world class example. An Art gallery featuring original works is on display, as is an exhibition showing the changes in clothing worn on Centre Court over the years.
The Kenneth Ritchie Library features a vast collection of literature on the game on Tennis and the Wimbledon tournament. There is an extensive shop and a fine cafeteria for visitors.
Though a welcome and informative break from play during the Wimbledon tournament itself- the Museum is best visited outside of play as it can get very busy.
